Subject: RE: BS: Common Wood Pigeon
Be careful. In the Pacific (Polynesian) islands the wood pigeon is special because that was the form used by the demigod Maui. I'm sure it isn't the same species but I thought I'd give you fair warning.

I just learned this, by the way, in my fancy book learning at University of Guam! Ain't knowledge fun?
